Swami Ramanananda

The photograph is of Swami Ramanananda which I took during a recent visit to his peaceful home near Arunachala Hill. During our interesting chat Swami made the interesting remark, “The current T.V. style of approach to spirituality in India has undermined and lowered the spiritual relationship even at the village level as everything is being touted by the media for a mass market consumption.”

Swami also mentioned that a well connected visitor from Kanchipuram once told him of a remark that the (now deceased) Shankaracharya Saraswati Chandrasekhar was believed to have made:

“Tiruvannamalai is going to become a Universal Centre of spirituality comprising all the faiths of the world.”
